This book was released on 2021-01-15 with total page 467 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Stories are everywhere around us, from the ads on TV or music video clips to the more sophisticated stories told by books or movies. Everything comes wrapped in a story, and the means employed to weave the narrative thread are just as important as the story itself. In this context, there is a need to understand the role storytelling plays in contemporary society, which has changed drastically in recent decades. Modern global society is no longer exclusively dominated by the time-tested narrative media such as literature or films because new media such as videogames or social platforms have changed the way we understand, create, and replicate stories. The Handbook of Research on Contemporary Storytelling Methods Across New Media and Disciplines is a comprehensive reference book that provides the relevant theoretical framework that concerns storytelling in modern society, as well as the newest and most varied analyses and case studies in the field. The chapters of this extensive volume follow the construction and interpretation of stories across a plethora of contemporary media and disciplines. By bringing together radical forms of storytelling in traditional disciplines and methods of telling stories across newer media, this book intersects themes that include interactive storytelling and narrative theory across advertisements, social media, and knowledge-sharing platforms, among others. It is targeted towards professionals, researchers, and students working or studying in the fields of narratology, literature, media studies, marketing and communication, anthropology, religion, or film studies. Moreover, for interested executives and entrepreneurs or prospective influencers, the chapters dedicated to marketing and social media may also provide insights into both the theoretical and the practical aspects of harnessing the power of storytelling in order to create a cohesive and impactful online image.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: R.K. Narayan (1906-2001) is one of the most influential and respected Indian writers. This book is a critical study of Narayan’s novels of the common people, their aspirations and struggles, their pieties and rituals, their myths and superstitions. The fictional town of Malgudi in pre-industrial Southern India is the setting for these timeless stories. The book presents a holistic view of Malgudi and its people from multiple perspectives, such as social, cultural, religious, and economic. In Narayan’s novels, tradition and modernity, fiction and reality, and mythology and history seamlessly merge to craft the narrative. They explore the impact of caste, class, and religion on the individual and the community, as well as the interface between the traditional and the modern, and the past and the present, highlighting the inherent pulls and tensions in society. However, even as Malgudi clings to its conservative past, it opens its doors to urban, educated, and professional men and women from the outside. The book will interest students, teachers, and scholars of literature.

Book Indian English and the Fiction of National Literature

Download or read Indian English and the Fiction of National Literature PDF, written by Rosemary Marangoly George and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2013-11-21 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the twentieth century, at the height of the independence movement and after, Indian literary writing in English was entrusted with the task of consolidating the image of a unified, seemingly caste-free, modernising India for consumption both at home and abroad. This led to a critical insistence on the proximity of the national and the literary, which in turn, led to the canonisation of certain writers and themes and the dismissal of others. Examining English anthologies of 'Indian literature', as well as the establishment of the Sahitya Akademi (the national academy of letters) and the work of R. K. Narayan and Mulk Raj Anand among others, Rosemary George exposes the painstaking efforts that went into the elaboration of a 'national literature' in English for independent India even while deliberating the fundamental limitations of using a nation-centric critical framework for reading literary works.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book’s contribution lies in its careful synthesis of concepts and concrete examples on issues of contemporary concern: terrorism, Orientalism, and Dalit Bahujan movements, and their reception in the popular media as well as in academic literature. Drawing from the latest developments in South Asian literary studies, this book examines the uses of postcolonial theory in understanding the structural transformations enabled by post-9/11 discourses of Orientalism and terrorism; the internal contradictions between South Asian approaches to postcolonialism (Subaltern Studies) and its European adaptations; and the resistance produced by the indigenization of local literary traditions in the work of select South Asian literary figures. The three sub-sections—“discourses,” “disjunctures,” and “indigenisms”—provide the conceptual space necessary for a thematic guidance of the respective arguments presented in this book. This book will be useful to scholars specializing in South Asian studies, Indian English Literature, Postcolonial Studies, Sociology, and Political Science.
